    Steps to scratch build a VW

    Sonex will send you their VW assembly DVD of the AeroVee 2180. I had it, but gave it to the guy that bought my Starlet project. It is a good step by step video. http://www.aeroconversions.com/support/aeroveevideo.html

    Corby Starlet Plans

    Mr Boyce in Lakeland passed away a year or so ago and is widow is not continuing the business.

    Rocket man flight

    Evel Kenevil was unconscious before his steam driven rocket bike was off the launch ramp and luckily had a dead man release for the parachute in his limp hand to release the parachute.

    Loehle Aero Coatings?
